I really enjoyed the emotions and detail of setting and characters in the book. It really brought Luke to a real person. and gave insight to the ties among separate events.

What make a book special is the way the writer delivers his message. And when the message is is so inspiring and amazingly delivered, the book is unique. Thanks Mr. Caldwell.

This is a wonderfully written endearing book about St. Luke. I read it first in the 70s and just had to had a copy again in my library. Because of the painstaking historical research done by Taylor Caldwell the Bible times come alive in a new way.

Taylor Caldwell wrote many books but this one is by far her best. She paints a beautiful picture of Bible land and the life of Dr. Luke, writer of the third Gospel and the book of Acts. Interesting from a medical perspective.
